well, been there, done that ;-)

I've attached the full patch against HEAD. Changes to the rfc1413.c/core 

- added IdentityCheckTimeout directive (defaults to 30)
- the ident lookup is plugged via an optional function
- the function ap_rfc1413 no longer exists (to avoid failures, resp. force 
  compile errors if someone trys)
- -> removed rfc1413.c and rfc1413.h
- put mod_ident.c into modules/metadata (ok? or is there a better place?)

I'd like to let someone review before committing, because it's at least a 
bunch of core changes.

(module documentation follows then.)
